REVIEW: DARKVOICE 3322 - Page 30

post #436 of 490

Don't let this thread die! the darkvoice 3322 looks like a fantastic amp, and quite possibly the best in its price range?

 

Regardless, I would happily buy one off anyone here. I'm in Australia, and i'm aware this isn't the trading forum, but just putting it out there. All aside, this amp is so nice and shiny. Not many others will look tubey yet modern, deliver good music and cost less than a wa3.

To the OP, can you please provide a direct link to the website you bought the amp from? You are the second person mentioning the page and so far I have not been able to get to that page. HAs it been closed out?

Could an experienced owner help me get the situation clear ? 

I've came through the entire thread and still would be happy to get an advice...

 

If Darkvoice 3322 (Svetlana + Mullard M8100) is a 100% reference. How much in comparison are the :

 

1. DarkVoice 336 (Sylvania)

2. LittleDot MKIII (Mullard M8100)

3. Woo Audio 3 or 6

 

At the moment I use LittleDot MKIII and I must know is this amp worth upgrading, or I should get the less or the more expensive one... Or even should I not upgrade after all, using my MKIII for longer as it is ?

I had the LD Mkiii and still have a Lafigaro 332s which I kept in preference to the Mkiii. In terms of sound quality the 332s is much stronger in all areas, more open sound stage, wider frequency, there is an effortless ease to its delivery.

Concerning tubes I prefer RCA command + Svetlana to Mullard, Telefunken and Raytheon were also good.

Differences are slight, tube rolling in the 332s is much less dramatic than the Mkiii.

With high impedance headphones there is no contest the 332s wins by a large margin I run DT770 600 ohm and Senn HD650.

I can say without reservation that the upgrade was excellent value for me and I have no regrets.

Thank you very much for your answer. I was very tempted buy the new 3322 reincarnation, but this dual-volume control makes me sad. I'll have to think twice before pushing the trigger.

Hey guys,

 

I'm thinking of selling my beloved Darkvoice 3322. Maybe i will list it on the for sale forum, but i want to give you guys a first chance...

 

Please feel free to send me a PM with further questions...

 

Regards,

Just bought a new DV3322 and looking for a great pair of tubes to match with my D5000 cans.

post #447 of 490

Would 3322 be better than the HiFiMan EF5 (if good at all) to drive a pair of HE-5LE Headphones? Please.

I'm a new owner of the Darkvoice 3322 so I thought I'd post my experiences with it in this thread.  I bought mine locally in Hong Kong, my unit is black in color and I haven't seen any silver editions in the shops here.  I'm relatively new to the higher end headphone world and this is my first tube amp, prior to this I was using a Musical Fidelity V-Can with my DT990 600Ohm headphones.  My source us a Marantz CD5001 player.  The sound quality I'm experiencing after only 10 hours usage is very good, far better than my previous amp which I am now selling.  I understand the 3322 is not yet burned in and I do notice the sound quality improving the more I listen.  Bass and musical detail are far better with this amp already.  I do plan on switching to new tubes at some point in the near future.  One question, the signal tubes have a metal housing around them.  In the pictures online I have not seen these.  Any benefit in keeping them on?  I think it would look better without these, how I do I remove them without breaking something?
